Last weekend I came up with the idea that due to the fact that February is claimed to be a month of roses I could wear rose fragrances exclusively through the entire month. But then I realized that even if I love my rose perfume, I don’t own so many to be able to fill the calendar with them. That’s when I reached out to you asking for help, so that we could make it a group effort and complete a February calendar, so that each of 28 days smells of different rose creation.
Your response was fantastic, many of you loved the idea and offered your favorite rose scents to help me with this challenge. Some of you were even ready to be filled in for more days that needed. My dear Undina even decided that she’ll wear only rose fragrances in February, she has so many of them. After taking into consideration all of your generous offers and days when you couldn’t participate, I managed to put it all together. I had so much fun making it work!
The result is a February calendar below. The one & only, unique and rich in roses. Just by looking at it I get the impression as I was smelling a bouquet of fresh roses. As you can see, each different days are assigned to different readers of Chemist in the Bottle and their respective perfume.
Due to the fact that I’ll be on a business trip in the Netherlands from Jan 31st to Feb 2nd, I will let Hajusuuri and Holly start the fun. I will hop on this rosy bandwagon on Feb 4th for the first time with one of my favorite winter roses – PHI Une Rose de Kandahar from Andy Tauer. I signed myself up for 6 days but I will do my best to wear a rose a couple more times. I hope everyone will enjoy this special February and its rose-richness we’ll create together.
